Everything they know is wrong

I think Ronald Reagan described Liberal policy best when he said this:

I saw some stuff on line last night the really makes me wonder what universe Liberals live in.

Ben Shapiro debated Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks.  (Note: if you want to create a hip, liberal news show, don’t name it after a political party that was responsible for the Armenian genocide.)

They debated taxes, when Cenk said this:

I have heard this before.  According to Liberals, the great, booming economy of the US in the 1950’s was BECAUSE the peak income tax rate was 90%, not in spite of it.  Forget that Western Europe and Japan had been bombed flat, Eastern Europe and Russia were under total Stalinist Communism, China was starving under Maoism, and the US was the only Western nation left with a manufacturing capacity that wasn’t having to be rebuilt from WWII.  It was the tax rate that made America successful and if we just went back to a peak 90% income tax for the rich, America will be great again.

They believe this.

MS-13 is the most deadly gang in the US.  They are known for their brutality and raping witnesses to death.  They are killing their way across Long Island.

Trump and Sessions have vowed to fight MS-13.

According to Liberals, fighting MS-13 is emboldening the gang.  The best way to fight them is not antagonize them and remember that MS-13 is a youth gang for immigrant kids (that likes to chop off hands and heads) and remind America that immigrants commit crimes at a lower rate than citizens (which isn’t true, they just conflate legal and illegal immigrants to cover the facts).

These are, of course, the same people who said banning people from nations overrun with terrorists is a recruiting tool for ISIS and will embolden terrorism.

On every single point they are wrong.

“If we raise the peak income tax to 90%, the economy will thrive.”

“If we try to stop a deadly, drug and sex trafficking gang, they will grow in power.”

“If we try and prevent terrorists from entering the country, we’ll make ourselves less safe.”

They seem to think they can make America great by taxing the pants off of law abiding citizens while letting violent gangs and radical Islamist run amok.

What color is the sky in the world these people live in?

Who can believe this?  It is ludicrous.

I’m beginning to believe that it’s not Ronald Reagan that described these people accurately, but Weird Al Yankovic when he sang:

Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you thought was just so
Important doesn’t matter

Everything you know is wrong
Just forget the words and sing along
All you need to understand is
Everything you know is wrong

  1. Way back when those tax rates were current, it was also substantially easier to hide your income from the government.

    While tax rates were coming down, it was also made much more difficult to avoid paying them. A lot of the means used to kill tax shelters were passed under the aegis of the war on drugs too.
